The journal of Global Geology (English Edition) is sponsored by the International Center of Geoscience Research and Education in Northeast Asia, Jilin University, China. The former name of the journal was the Journal of International Geoscientific Research in Northeast Asia. It was launched in 1998 and served scientists and teachers in geosciences in the world. The Editorial Board is composed of 42 scientists from various countries in the world, including China, German, Japan, Korea, Russia, the UK and USA. The journal was biannually in publication from 1998 to 2007, but it has been changed to be published quarterly in March, June, September and December since 2008. We hope that the readers worldwide will be more interested in and continue to support our journal by contributing more papers to the journal.
